  1. Hey nuhi, thanks for the reply At this point I actually have Program Files, Common Files, Documents and Settings, Temp, and pagefile.sys on a separate partition from Windows It's the first time I actually tried doing this, and Windows feels MUCH faster, so I thought it would be worth a shot to move the Installer folder too and see what it does... Of course it's your call if you wanna add the feature or not, since I really don't know how much time/work it would take you.. but nevertheless, thanks a bunch for all the effort you've put into nLite, I can't live without it anymore
  2. Hi all, I've been using nLite for quite a while now, and I think I have a feature request that would benefit everybody.. I was searching for a place to make my request and I found these forums, so I signed up Personally, when I install Windows I like to put it on a separate 1GB partition (C:), with my Documents and Settings, Program Files, Common Files, and Temporary folder on another partition (D:). I keep my OS partition as FAT32, since it is a bit faster than NTFS and so I can have easy access if I need to boot up in DOS. Now here's the problem: When Windows is first installed, it takes up around 500MB on my computer, which is a pretty good size. However, as programs are installed, the Windows folder grows because the Windows Installer directory is located in C:\Windows\Installer. This stores the .msi files of programs that are installed, which allows them to be removed/modified from the Windows control panel. For some programs, the files can get pretty big... Is there a way to move the Windows installer folder to another partition? In my case I'd like to put it in D:\Program Files\Installer, to prevent the Windows folder from getting bloated... Is there any registry tweak, patch or anything that can do this? Could it be integrated into nLite? What do you guys think? Good idea or bad idea? Faruk
